Fast & painless, I-10 nearly done

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

The predicted construction nightmare on Interstate 10 never materialized, and for that we tip our hats to the Arizona Department of Transportation and its contractors.

The mammoth, $200 million widening project now is expected to be completed by December – way ahead of the expected April 2010 finish.

It’s been under way since June 2007. And, yes, we’ve all experienced some detours and a few instances of slowed traffic.

But considering the scale of the work – widening the highway from six to eight lanes between Prince Road and 29th Street; erecting seven bridges and underpasses; and adding new exit and access ramps – drivers have suffered very little inconvenience.

The project managers have proven to be far better prepared and more efficient than locals expected. We commend them – and we thank them.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
